Pixies Track 6

Pixies Album Competition, take 6... or, rather, whatever: I'll list stuff. You then have the opportunity to do other stuff. The Come On Pilgrim tracks are more optional than the others - the whole thing is, of course, optional - as they won't count towards deciding The Official Favorite Pixies Album of Force Power Paintball and Other Diversions - for that bit only the relative rankings of songs from the 4 albums will be used. Feel free to rank other extraneous media (or, you know, whatever) in your comments. Also feel free to include tons of hilarious and biting commentary to make up for my current lack of inspiration.

Come On Pilgrim - Nimrod's Son
Surfer Rosa - River Euphrates
Doolittle - Dead
Bossanova - Ana
Trompe Le Monde - U-Mass

We have a much-maligned song from TLM (cf Thom Yorke's take on"it's educational!"), Black Francis singing from "out here on the Gaza strip," and several songs with lyrics consisting of quasi-biblical references and another quasi-(surf)-ballad from Bossanova.

Please offer your rankings via the comments widget below or to my email - with Pixies in the subject - which can be found in earlier posts.

Ok, this is the last one for the night (although it may somehow look like the first). IMO, this bunch of songs is like a poker pot at which nobody wants to make a serious effort, but these songs are legit nonetheless. As is, like, 98% of their catalog.

4. Ana (I hardly know it, but I don't recall getting into it)
3. Dead
2. U-Mass
1. River Euphrates

FWIW, RE reminds me of WoM, except that it's harder and I like it a little bit more. The live version on The Complete B-Sides is great times too.

I know none of my votes for the COP songs will count, but they are the best so damn it, they will continue to get my vote!
